A lava cake. Yes. We must rebel against a world offering us instant pudding. There is so much more people! That's right. Lace your banana bread with ribbons of chocolate. Make that Christmas bark with cranberries and nuts. We will no longer accept carob as a substitute (unless you like carob, then go for it). Yes. We will have flaky pie crusts with fillings that have three types of apples, or fresh peaches. That's right. No cardboard crusts. We will use actual lemon zest in our lemon pies. We will make our strudels in long sheets, in small squares or long sticks (or apple perishky as we say in the Mennonite cooking circles. Get yourselves a copy of "Food That Really Schmecks".) Whew! It is getting too hot in the kitchen. Time for some lemonade.
Note re:strudel. It is apple. I use Macintosh and Granny Smiths and maybe one other type depending what is at the market. The crust is given a light egg wash to slightly brown the edges and the little cut outs of leaves for decoration. There are vent slit to allow for the bubbling up of the cinnamon sugar. Once it has cooled slightly it is drizzled with a light icing. For the smaller square ones the dough is rolled out and cut into squares. They are filled and the opposite corners are pinched together and then the seams are sealed. The seams face upwards. These do not have icing but they are an anticipated treat in the fall and at Christmas.
When I was a professional cook back in the day I did the light egg wash too on my pies and got rave reviews. That apple persnickety strudel sounds outstanding. Lemonade. Crushed ice.

It IS kind of funny...

Maybe a lot of us are so afraid of rejection right off the bat that we won't even lead the horse on up to the gate. 🐴

Probably because everyone is really looking for a unicorn. 🦄
True.True.
Or maybe some think that leading the horse up to the gate seems too much effort esp if the gates far away..😉😊

The thing is, I am chronically underweight and need to gain some poundage. I have this thing for chocolate too.

I have learned from observing others that if you complain too much about how hard it is to gain weight, you will earn the ire of a LOT of women... and some men too, though they won't be as vocal about it.

Speaking of food, my honey is going to bake another batch of her cornbread. She makes a good cheesecake too. I believe that there is an element of truth in what you said in that even looking at scrumptious food (especially desserts) is a contributing factor for gaining weight. I obviously need to look at more yummy desserts. It could be that I have a sweet tooth.

I have had a sweet tooth too but from childhood..coz sweet things just taste so GOOD...😋😋and yer looking at desserts you can even feel the flavours calling out to you saying "eat me coz that why I have been made in the 1st place"😂
Sounds like her cornbread and cheesecake is mighty fine to..jealous of you now..😉😉

VIRTURAL DATE NIGHT
CHRISTIAN CHAT ROMANTIC INVITATIONAL


Do you have that certain 'special one' prancing 'round your thoughts that resides in the CC Singles community? Now is your opportunity to invite this member for a virtual date, providing it’s consensual, and that the member is indeed single and not married. However, it may be acceptable to arrange a virtual double date night with a married couple. While we are all adults here there really is no need for an exhaustive list of do’s and don’ts but use your own discretion on the appropriate behavior that may or may occur.

Please be advised though that, like Vegas, what happens here stays here. Feel free to burst into song occasionally but try not to sing out of key. The guys may want to consider bringing a bouquet of flowers and a box of chocolates, preferably dark to set the mood and the tone for the evening.

NO RULES - JUST RIGHT

"Who knows how much further we'll go on?
Maybe I'll be sorry when you're gone.
I'll take my chances,
I forgot how nice romance is,

I haven't been there for the longest time."
I would most definitely go on a virtual date..why not if there was someone here that caught me eye (not saying a word..😉😉)..
I would most probably do some subtle research into their favourite things..Then coz I can cook..cook her a great meal sending pic of me makin it..then serve her the virtual dish..🍽🥂😊😊..lots of banter and just chilled out interaction..then if she like the Ron com sleepless in Seattle or whatever we movie we both happen to enjoy... we would both be watching it at exactly the same time in our homes exchanging comments about it virtually..just hope by then then we dont both fall asleep at the same time on our seperate sofas miles apart coz of tiredness....😊😊😊😊

That definitely sounds like a plan to me. Actually, it sounds doable. I do believe that you are romantically inclined.

Joking can be driven by subconscious feelings. :)
Very true good sir. Myself, I am a very visual thinker. When I pictured the idea of a putting myself out there, it felt like an audition. Then the scenario entered my mind and I had a bit of a giggle. I've done a little stage work, and with the glare of the lights you can't, for the most part, see the audience. I have, when I was doing background extra work for a show, accidentally sat in the wrong seat. It belonged to one of the actors. I was mortified so I tried to jump up and got pulled back by my cardigan, which had gotten stuck in the hinges. Oh yes, such a dignified moment, lol.
My philosophy is that life gives you great memories or great stories, so most of it is a win/win. I love humour and am comfortable in my own skin. Asking if someone would care to have a virtual date is a fair way out of my wheelhouse. For now I'm happy to celebrate, encourage, console and share thoughts with the good people I meet here. I've even learned how to make a great loaf of sourdough bread. Who can ask for more than that? :)

How did that go? Did anyone notice you were in the wrong seat? Or when your cardigan got stuck? You could say it was part of the act. They slid in a little bit of last minute script revisions to spice up the show.

Did I ever mention the time I learned how to drive? I don't think you can beat that in terms of embarassment. That was even when I was taking a refresher course since I hadn't driven in almost a decade.

Yep. You can learn new things all the time. I learned what a Strudel is. I was curious enough to read about it on Wikipedia. For some reason, I thought of it as those cinnamon things you put in the toaster.

I'd love to hear about the driving class. The person that noticed I was sitting in the star's seat was the star himself. I jumped up, holding on to my cardigan and when it did come with me I tripped. He was so gracious and I quickly retreated into the crowd, lol. I wish that that had been the last time I exhibited a distinct lack of coordination but, well, I'll save those stories for later.
I am so impressed that you looked up strudel. I have a heritage that demands that holidays have the tables laden with food, and a good portion of that is baking. Strudel is one of those things that is best on the day it is made. I hope you have the chance to indulge.
